You can use fresh herbs in this recipe, because really, why wouldn’t you? But for this simple salad, I like dried.

If you don’t have time to use dried beans, substitute 2 cans of chickpeas, drained and rinsed, and skip to the second paragraph of the instructions, but only use 1/2 tsp of sea salt. Serve alone as a side or over a green salad for a full lunch.

Ingredients:

  1. 1 cup dried chickpeas, soaked overnight, drained & rinsed
    1 tsp sea salt, divided
    1/2 cup thinly sliced green beans
    1/2 cup halved grape tomatoes
    1/2 cup diced red pepper
    1/3 cup diced red onion
    4 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
    1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar
    1/2 tsp dried thyme
    1/2 tsp dried basil
    1/2 tsp dried oregano
    1/4 tsp fresh cracked black pepper

Directions:

    1. Add soaked chickpeas to a medium pot with 9 cups of water & 1 tsp sea salt. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Simmer for approx 1 hour or until chickpeas are tender, but not mushy. If the water runs low while simmering, add a few cups more.
    2. Once chickpeas are done, strain in a colander and rinse with cool water until they have reached room temperature. Drain well.
    3. In a medium bowl, combine chickpeas with the rest of the ingredients. Toss to combine. Add salt and fresh ground pepper to taste.
